The Muslim Marriage Guide (Part 2)
July 22, 2006 § 1 Comment
I have been analyzing my views lately and also taking a look at who is interested in “Wa Salaam”. Interestingly enough, the most popular topic for the past 2 weeks was a blurb that I wrote about marital problems I was having… huh? I was a little disheartened, because if you look at the work I have been putting into some of these articles I thought that they would certainly be more interesting than my marriage problems, which have since resolved.
But then I realized that the only reason people are so interested is because it was in fact eventually resolved. So then I got to thinking there are probably a lot of couples having marital problems right now! And although I have recommended (and still do) “The Muslim Marriage Guide” by Ruqayyah Waris Maqsood, you should know it does fall short of being a proper “Guide” for an Islamic marriage.
Marriage is a difficult process with the most beautiful outcomes and I wish you all much success in finding the right spouse for you, inshaAllah. There is another book I will recommend which is certainly a more complete book on Islamic Marriage but a slightly more difficult read, the book is called, “Blissful Marriage: A Practical Islamic Guide” by Dr. Ekram and Dr. M. Rida Beshir.
Also… alot of you Muslims may be looking for a spouse on-line which is also a frustrating and difficult process. So I have added a video-tutorial on on-line marriages to give you an edge on the process, please enjoy…
